Yesterday, July 14 was the feast of Kateri Tekakwitha, Lily Among the Mohawks, patron of environmentalists and a long-time favorite of our former girls camp, Glinodo. Lovely native American prayers and poems about Kateri are pulled out every year on her feast.
This icon is by one of my favorite contemporary iconographers, Janet McKenzie. Her work can be seen on her own website and at Bridge Building, which I believe is out of Connecticut.
Here's some summer beauty up close and personal out by our greenhouse.
